Prolapase and trying to get pregnant.

BWMMom posted:
Hello,

I am a 33 year old mother of a beautiful three year old girl. We started trying for baby number two after my daughter turned two, and we got pregnant within three months, but I miscarried. My husband and I have continued to try conceiving, it's been over a year now, with no luck.

I have prolapse (cervix) and am afraid that this has something to do with my difficultly in conceiving. Is this true? Would this be giving me a hard time?

Has anyone dealt with prolapse after giving birth? Does it ever get better?

Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
Prolapse should not affect your ability to conceive or maintain a pregnancy. It is a very common problem that is best addressed by your OBGYN only if very symptomatic and once you are done with childbearing if possible.

Since you are 33 and have been trying for over a year to conceive, it is best that you see your OBGYN for an initial evaluation.
